VHF Field Day

VHF Field Day 2024 – Sat 6th/Sun 7th July

Hi folks, it’s time to start planning for this year’s entry for VHF Field Day.

Usual format – travel down to our site near Castle Douglas on the Friday, leaving Tranent at lunchtime. We should have most of the antenna farm assembled by late afternoon, then we get a takeaway and have a few beers.

Station build is usually finished off Saturday morning and the contest runs 3pm Saturday to 3pm Sunday. We should be off the site and heading home back of 4.

All being well, we should get back to a full entry this year, with stations:

50MHz (Sat)

70MHz (Sun)

144MHz (24hrs)

432MHz (24hrs)

I’ll have a large box van on hire for our shack, and we should also have the usual large tent on site for others not on the radio.

If you’ve not been before and have any questions, please contact me direct.

If you are planning to attend, would you mind letting me know, either on Facebook or by email mm0ccc <at> gmx.co.uk
